The information is designed to be used by local-level collaborators and community members. Political and regulatory constraints to implementing integrated services are also discussed.

Local projects can use this information to seek financial support, technical assistance, or options for networking with others. Relevant legislation and possible sources of financial support are included. Section IV and appendices offer additional information about publications and tools to aid a collaborative effort through each stage of development. Appendix A discusses interdisciplinary education programs and is geared toward university and college faculty who educate service professionals. Appendices B, C, D, and E offer, respectively: sample needs assessment surveys, staff oath of confidentiality, and release forms; and excerpts from Alabama and Florida state legislation.
